IRt/c.07 - Self Powered Infrared Thermocouples

Watertown, MA, October 22, 2003. Exergen Corporation, Watertown, MA introduces NEW IRt/c.07 - SELF POWERED Infrared Thermocouples. The IRt/c.07 is a low cost, light weight, lensed model IRt/c, with a 7:1 field of view, which adds a better optical temperature sensor to the 0 Series line. The IRt/c.01 (1:1 field of view) and IRt/c.03 (3:1 field of view) are the other products in the 0 Series line, they are light weight, ABS plastic sensors, which are also light in the wallet.

The IRt/c.07 allows for measurements at distances up to seven times that of the IRt/c.01, at a price less than twice that of the IRt/c.01, and close to half the price of much of the competition.

The sensing range of this new model and all 0 Series sensors are -50 to 550 ºF (-45 to 290 ºC) and the ambient temperature range is -40 to 160 ºF (-40 to 70 ºC). There are seven different temperature ranges, in which they are calibrated at to obtain true accuracy compared to a K type t/c. They also hold true accuracy with changes in ambient temperatures.

The IRt/c's are the most reliable in the world, and the IRt/c 0 Series have a MTBF of > 1,000 years. Having no active electronics, being hermetically sealed, and intrinsically safe, the IRt/c.07 gives you a trusted sensor, with performance and accuracy that will contribute to increasing production yield in any application, for a small fraction of the cost of your equipment.
